What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
I was not really an Old Main person considering Raven Village is on the opposite side of this dining hall, but South Paw (which has Moes and Starbucks) was pretty good and I liked how Moes has meal plan so you can eat without having to spend Bearkat Bucks depending on what you get. Also LSC (Lowman Student Center) is the spot to be during classes and also a great place to grab some Subway, Pizza Hut, or Chick Fil A. They also have a meal plan option with chicken strips and hamburgers called Grill Works and depending on your taste can be good and bad just depends on the day. I mainly went to the Mcdonalds right next to Raven Village or ordered from Dominoes because of convenience and laziness.

Felicia from Cedar Park, TX
The food at Old Main and Moe's are okay; they're not great but not awful. There is also a food court in the Lowman Student Center that includes Chick Fil A, Pizza Hut, Subway, and Grill Works, and there is Einstein Bagels on the same floor as the bookstore. Sandwiches, snacks, sushi, and smoothie are also sold at the student center and Moe's.

Food and Dining is pretty good! We have a new facility, Old Main Market that was built in the summer of 2011 which has a great variety of food. We also have other fast food places on campus, like Paw Print and South Paw. What ever your fix or crave, you can get it at Sam!
